Writing Centre Consultations:

One-on-one consultations are available for graduate students who seek individualized assistance with their writing. In these 40-minute sessions, trained instructors work with you to improve your capacity to plan, write, and revise your academic assignments. While our instructors won’t edit for you, they will teach you strategies to revise and edit your own work. The appointments can be booked online two to three weeks in advance.
